attention was a drug to him as well. let's move on. bill clinton is defending his economic policies. not just to shape his own legacy but to neutralize criticism ahead of his wife's potential run. speaking at georgetown university, the former president pushed back after the administration put business concerns over where the former secretary of state was looking at him from the front row, clinton reflected on how his budget helped boost education and pave the way for the affordable care act. >> almost immediately we had several million children getting health insurance who couldn't get it. i don't know how many times i have read from the left bitter criticism about what a slug i was to sign the balanced budget act of '96 lowering the capital gains rate from 28% to 20%. you're afraid to decide that you think i made a mistake, but all the people that say, you know, what was bill clinton doing getting in bed with wall street and lowering the capital gains tax, he was getting 6 million poor children health insurance coverage. you can say clinton was lucky. he caught the tech boom. clint

political an assessment, for example, hillary clinton gets elected for eight years of democratic rule, followed by two and a half years more of president obama, at some point during the course of that decade, they might be able to shift the supreme court back to something reasonable about the money and speech. but remember, it seems to be as long as you got discord, even with kennedy on it, you're not going to get a good result. >> that's true, but the history of reform as a political matter, you know this, is there's no impetus in congress for change unless there's -- >> of course not. >> unless there's a scandal. watergate, all led to reform, but we got to -- you wait for that, then you -- >> could that be because politicians think it must be a good system, i'm here? >> that's right. >> thank you, david corn. i'm very despondent about this decision and its constant use of big money to tell us what to think. >>> anyway, up next, big victory for opponents of voter i.d. laws, and it is a big victory, and the reason some believe it could lead to more victories. this is "hardball," the p

clinton said it is arithmetic. but what the republicans are doing is not just race-based it is class-based. it is gender-based. their policies are flat-out against working class and middle class people in -- not only in ohio but in this country. and so again, the voters need to stand up. i applaud the president, big ups to him for standing up to them. big ups to the senate, to the democrats in the senate. and i tell you something, ed, they need to introduce this every single day every single day, continue to -- >> i agree. >> -- push back on what the republicans are doing. americans stand up for equality and justice for all. guess what raising the minimum wage, ed, is not only a moral issue, it's an economic issue as well. the more money people have, the more they will spend in the economy and the more they spend, the more jobs we create. so who is on the side of the citizens of the great -- not only the great state of ohio but of this country? we need to take it to them, ed, every chance we get. >> state senator nina turner of who who great to have you with us tonight. appreciate yo

for president than simply a clinton or a bush. corey, do you think americans are over political dynasties? >> when they stop voting for the members of those political dynasties, yeah. then they'll really be over it. i think americans always want expanded choice. but the truth of the matter is, this is a -- america runs on a two-party system. and we've seen time and again that candidates who aren't anointed by those two parties don't get very far. especially in a general election. >> it's certainly something i personally as a voter lament. that there's not more space outside of that rigid two-party system. howard, within that two-party system and within those dynasties, the numbers we're looking at right now to this latest poll are 48% viewing clinton positively. 32% viewing her negatively. on the other hand, 21% viewing jeb bush positively and even more, 32% viewing him negatively. what do you think of this question of whether 2016 is going to be a dynastic drag race if you will? >> i think it's way too early to say that. i think somebody is going to run against hillary. maybe several peo
